Kane County Marital Agreement Lawyers
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys in St. Charles, Elgin, Geneva, and Northern Illinois
It is a common misconception that only people with high assets should enter into a prenuptial agreement. However, couples of any income are able to and should enact marital agreements. Assets such as vehicles, retirement accounts, and property can be considered in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. The experienced Kane County attorneys at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC can assist you in negotiating and drafting marital agreements. We consider all possibilities and ensure that our clients' best interests are protected.
Why Draft a Marital Agreement?
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be enacted for various reasons. Our seasoned attorneys have helped hundreds of clients gain peace of mind when entering a marriage. A marital agreement can be useful for the following situations:
- One party has valuable assets at stake such as businesses, real estate, or stock holdings;
- One spouse brings in a higher income than the other spouse and wants to protect his or her assets;
- One party has a significant amount of debt and the other party does not want to be responsible; or
- There are children to consider from a previous relationship and inheritance can be protected.
Though prenuptial or postnuptial agreements seem to presume that a divorce is inevitable, these documents are actually smart safety nets. Should the unlikely happen and your marriage ends, both parties will be protected. Also, the divorce process could potentially be resolved quickly.
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can not only help a divorce go more smoothly, but it also provides a clear route through the maze of divorce. Marital agreements can assist in the fair distribution of assets and provide financial security for one or both parties involved. Marital agreements can also be updated should both spouses change their mind. Whether you are drafting a new marital agreement or modifying your current one, our lawyers can help.
